The temple is on top of a hill behind which is the karla caves. We went around the caves and then entered the templ. The temple is well maintained and we had a good darshan. There was no much crowd so were so done with it quite fast.

You have to climb steep slope to go upto the hill. This temple is right on top of the hill. You can see complete Lonavala and couple of forts from this place that are beyond Karla. Easily accessible from Lonavala. Must visit in monsoon to have fun.

you have to climb stairs to reach temple. No other option is there so better oldage and small kids should avoid. Make sure that you don't visit in any festival days. we went in Navratri so, have to wait in line . Other wise it should be in your must visit list
